Dominika Cibulkova defeated Marion Bartoli 6-1 7-5 to win the 2012 Mercury Insurance Open at Carlsbad. With the victory, Dominika wins her 2nd WTA singles title, moving to #13 in the new WTA rankings, one spot short of her highest ranking (#12) all-time. Marion had her chance to turn the match around. After Dominika blitzed her in the first set, Bartoli came back and led 4-1 in the second. But Cibulkova caught fire again to win 6 of the next 7 games, denying the top-seed Bartoli. To celebrate her win, Dominika rode the water slide at La Costa Resort in her tennis outfit.
